# For the problems below, when asked to conduct the hypothesis test, please use the seven-stepprocess we have been using in class. Also, in step 7, it is very important to be clear in yourconclusion. There are three parts to this: evidence from your hypothesis test, the decision to rejector fail to reject the null hypothesis, and the conclusion in the context of the problem. For example,referring to the first example we did in Chapter 10, we stated the following-1.03 is not less than -1.96, nor is it greater than +1.96, so we fail to reject Ho: H- 2 0, andconclude that there is no difference in mean yield strength between the two types of roof bolts."(Here, the evidence is-1.03 is not less than -1.96, nor is it greater than +1.96The decision isWe fail to reject Ho: 41 - 42 = 0The conclusion in the context of the problem isWe conclude that there is no difference in mean yield strength between the two types ofroof bolts)7polisn operation for manufacturing interocular lenses used in the human eye following cataractsurgery.

Step 1

(a) Computation of seven-step hypothesis test:

(i) Parameter of interest:

Let p1 denote the proportion of first type of polishing solution and p2 denotes the proportion of second type of polishing solution.

(ii) Null hypothesis:

H0: p1 = p2

That is, the proportion of two polishing solutions are same.

(iii) Alternative hypothesis:

Ha: p1 ≠ p2

That is, the proportion of two polishing solutions are different.

(iv) Formula for test statistic:

The formula for the test statistic is as follows:

Step 2

(vii) Conclusion:

Here, the level of significance is 0.01.

The p-value (=0.000) is less than the significance level (=0.01).

That is, reject H0 at 1% level of...
